Can you believe next week is September? Neither can we. While you take advantage of the last few weeks of summer and get around to finally hosting that picnic or BBQ, we got you covered with some sale items to help make it possible. This batch of markdowns includes a dining chair made for small spaces, a Tumi luggage that fits enough for a month’s worth of traveling, and the most status-y blender, the Vitamix, for all of your cocktail needs. While you’re making frozen drinks, you might as well get a pitcher to show them off and a chip and dip platter, so your guests can snack on something. And if you missed out on last week’s All-Clad deal, we found another one that beats buying it at retail.
We’re recommending these products because we actually use, and like, them. Things you buy through our links may earn us a commission.
All-Clad 10-Piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set
Last week you guys loved the All-Clad markdown, but unfortunately that sale is over. This deal, while not as steep, is still a solid way to get a high-end cookware set for less.
All Clad 8-Inch & 10-Inch Hard Anodized Aluminum Nonstick Fry Pan Set
But if you’re only sorta into cooking and just need a few pans that don’t cost too much, this set is the way to go. It’s nonstick aka easy cleanup, and costs about the same as a nice takeout dinner for two.
Vitamix Vitamix One™
Is there a mixer more status-y than a Vitamix? It rarely goes on sale and when it does, there are limited quantities. So if you want this one, act fast, there are only a few left.
Tumi Medium Tegra-Lite Max Expandable Packing Case
Until I can afford a Rimowa suitcase, my hands down favorite is this one by Tumi. I’ve used it for multiple work trips and vacations alike, shoving it full with enough clothing and shoe options to last me a month or more (I tend to overpack). And even though I may have had to pay overweight fees a few times, I was always able to bring everything I needed plus plenty of souvenirs.
You’re going to need a pitcher for all of those frozen drinks you’re whipping up in your new Vitamix so you might as well pick this one up while you’re shopping our sales post.
Tamsin Dining Chair
Ideal for your tiny dining room, this sleek gray and gold chair is an upgrade from that flimsy plastic Ikea one that threatens to buckle every time you sit on it.
Citronella Ancona Ceramic Candle
It’s still warm enough for mosquitoes to ruin the vibe once the sun sets. Do your guests (and their ankles) a favor and get a nice looking citronella candle to ward them off.
Le Creuset Demi Tea Kettle
Still don’t know the difference between modern farmhouse and cottagecore? We explain it here. If you want a tl;dr version, this kettle is cottagecore because it has quaint and cozy vibes. Should that be your style, get it now on sale.
Staub 1.5-Qt. Petite French Oven, White
The problem with most Dutch ovens is that they make enough food for a small army. If you’re cooking for one, this is a good size to get.
Neiman Marcus 20-Piece Butterfly Dinnerware Service
Another cottagecore-y find are these butterfly plates that will add a dreamy, “fairy in the woods” vibe to your dining table.
Blueland The Clean Kitchen Kit
While this won’t eliminate single use plastic from your kitchen cleaning routine completely, the Blueland Clean Kitchen Kit does help lower your impact. Featuring refillable containers and compact tablets that have concentrated cleaning fluid (all you have to do is add water to make a full spray bottle), they’re effective and space saving while being eco conscious.
Meadow Picnic Basket
You have about a month or so before it starts to get too cold for picnics so you might as well go all out and get a proper basket to enjoy the experience.
Vera for Anthropologie Plaid Bamboo Melamine Chip & Dip
Chips? Good. Dip? Good. Broken chip and dip platter because someone knocked it off a table? Bad. Get a shatter-proof melamine one and never have that happen to you.
Mobot Big Bertha 40-Ounce Foam Roller Water Bottle
Not to sound like a trainer but you should be hydrating and rolling out those quads and hips. With this 2-in-1 water bottle, doing both in one post workout session is much easier, even if it’s outside at the park.
